Cement Business Relationships in the Year of the Ram

Global alliances between companies, whether they’re in the US, China or Timbuktu, are a fact of life in business today. Intercontinental business dealings are rife and the importance of maintaining them detrimental. Now, we’re not saying that every business interaction is going to turn in to a full blown business affair, some are merely fleeting, but the fact remains maintaining strong lines of communication is key. Successful business partnerships depend on the management of the relationship, not just the deal.

So, with this in mind, what better time to put things into motion and celebrate the first day of the Chinese calendar with your overseas counterparts. Have a browse through our static and animated corporate ecards and share in the traditions and customs of the Chinese New Year. Just to make your choice a little more difficult, we’ve added a brand new animated ‘Firecracker’ ecard.

New ‘Firecracker’ Chinese New Year Ecard

The Year of the Horse brought spectacular celebrations in 2014 so join in the festivities for the Year of the Ram.

Growth of Mobile Makes China Largest Online Population

This week, it emerged that China now not only has the largest global population, but also has the biggest and quickest growing online population in the world too.

CNN reported that with more than 649 million internet users, China outnumbers “the entire U.S. population two to one.” And of this figure, the article reports that 80% use their smartphones and tablets to connect.

In light of these growing figures it’s not so surprising that last year Facebook founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, decided to address a room of Chinese students in their native Mandarin. Speaking to the students of the prestigious Business School at Tsinghua University, Zuckerberg told the audience that he was “so glad to be in Beijing”.

See his full speech in the video below:

Despite the banning of Facebook and other social networks such as Twitter and YouTube in China, Zuckerberg’s attempt to impress shows the importance of creating good business relationships with the world’s largest economy..

It’s also a country that will soon be celebrating the most important date in its calendar – Chinese New Year. And just like a certain social media mogul, we’ve also been busy creating some ingenuous way to connect and share in the celebrations with business partners overseas…

Our Chinese New Year Ecards provide a great range of traditional designs to celebrate ‘The Year of the Ram’. Take a look at our newest addition to the company ecard category below:
